In high school, my best friend was catholic and therefore was made by her parents to give up something for Lent. I'm not religious, but I gave up something too, just to make it easier for her.

You can never lose with the Buddy System.
(I have to tell you though, that in her household Sundays were free days, so it made it a little easier.)
I kept up with this tradition for a while even when we went our separate ways for college and life in general. My pregnancies were always over Lent and I figured I was giving up enough during that time, so it's been awhile since I've practiced.
I'm running out of time here. I think you know where I'm going with this. I think I'm Back On this year. (Maybe it's because in the past month I've eaten double my body weight in Dove chocolates and if I don't do something quick I won't be able to button my jeans.)
So, I have one day to decide if and what I'll be giving up. Anyone else want to play? I need a Buddy!
